Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, the Street Food and Grooves Festival will not take place in 2020 but will return in 2021.
The Street Food and Grooves Festival is back for a third year and after the successful launch in 2018, this year is set to be even bigger and better!
The festival will kick off with it’s opening night on Friday 5 June where you’ll be able to find bars, a choice of hot food and a fantastic line up of some the area’s best live music. The whole weekend will be free entry and everyone is welcome to come down to the town centre and join in!
On Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 June, trading will start at 9am and there, you will find a plethora of different hot and cold street food to sample, including vegan and vegetarian as well as artisan alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks. As part of the event the New Market Place will be open with traders selling crepes, olives, preserves and other cold food and in the New Market arena you’ll find hot food traders all selling food from around the world from their own unique trailers and gazebos.
All of this is accompanied by a line up of talented local singers, duos, trios and bands on the Sound Bites stage. Full programme available Spring 2020.
